From past years, we've noticed that fares just keep going up. I bought our June 2013 airfare in November 2012, with what I considered a good reasonable fare. It has since doubled in price. I'd say as soon as you find something you'd consider relatively reasonable, book it.

We fly SW out of Midway all the time. This will be our 5th June trip. SW is still WAY too high to consider booking yet. Their prices will come down in the next several weeks, but you need to watch the prices (daily, if you can).

Also, Tues, Wed and Thurs are by far the cheapest days of the week to fly.

We usually pay about $100 each way (sometimes a little more, a lot of times less) for midweek flights to Orlando.

Good luck!

I purchased our airfare for our June trip this past October. In the months since, I've watched the price only go up. Right now it's $200 pp/rt more then when I bought. Howmany airlines are you pricing? Try leaving from an alternate airport if possible. As fuel prices for jet fuel keep going up, so will their fare cost. I would suggest to buy asap if you can.

I was shocked when I started shopping for airfare for our late May, early June trip. It is so high in price, even for the larger airport 2 hours away, that I had to talk my husband into driving. It was either drive, or not take the trip.

The prices I quoted were for Tues/Weds travel in & out of Omaha. If I drove to Kansas City, the prices are a little cheaper, but then I have the cost of gas & parking, not to mention the actual driving involved.
